Bennerley Fields School

Nurture. Support. Aspire. Achieve.


Welcome to Wollaton's class page. We are a vibrant, active KS3 class of 12 students. The staff are Gemma, Amabel, Jackie and Heather.

We are working on building positive relationships, being kind and accepting of each other and learning how to embrace our differences. We celebrate our achievements and work together as a team to earn marbles. When we’ve got all our marbles we can decide as a team what special treat to have, this could be a movie afternoon, trip to the park, games day etc. Pupils can earn dojos points for individual achievements by demonstrating the Bennerley Attitudes.We will also have a student of the week award each week.


We will be exploring a range of topics this year starting with ‘Blue Abyss!’. Our curriculum includes enrichment activities, recognising and expressing our emotions, being safe online, visits out in the community, Forest School and PE.


Maths, English, Science and PSHE will be focused on developing fundamental skills and science will involve lots of exploratory learning by carrying out fun experiments with Kathryn on a Monday morning.

PE is on Mondays with Joe, an specialist PE coach – please provide a change of clothes and suitable footwear for PE
